    That isn't for you to decide, that is for the shareholders of the large companies to decide but then again it isn't the large companies that drive the U.S. economy, it is the small companies, the ones Obama is destroying and couldn't care less about. What is quite telling is what an expert you are on business yet you have never run one.

    Didn't forget nor do I care. You are the one that cares about getting enough money to pay for a 3.9 trillion dollar govt. that Obama wants. Not once have I seen any liberal talking about cutting the size of govt. to closer match the revenue but rather throwing more money at the beast. My view is the same as the Founders with their vision of the Federal Govt. You have bought the liberal rhetoric that healthcare is a national problem, no it is a personal responsibility and a local problem. You have not proven the opposite. Logic and common sense make me a conservative

    Yes, labor and HC, and not taxes. Exactly what I said. Glad you finally agree.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    So in other words, you have no answer for the fact that for decades companies made large profits while paying a living wage. In short, it really isn't about making a profit then.

    I didn't. We did as a country through elected representatives. And reaffirmed by their continued election. Are you saying you prefer another form of government than ours?

    I actually posted results, you don't seem to understand the concept of results. Guess they didn't teach you that at Disney

    So you don't think companies pay taxes on their employees? Taxes and regulations are a major part of business decision making and their financial statement. Interesting how you don't understand that reality

    So that you understand, wages and salaries are tied to economics just like everything else in business. When the supply of workers is higher than the demand, as it is now, wages and salaries will be lower. During times of full employment they will be higher. The solution to low wages is full employment. In order to get full employment you need the economy to improve. In order to get the economy to improve you need to get government to let it recover. As long as government decides it wants to "manage" the economy and dictate what business can and can't do, things will be as they are. Sorry, that's the truth.

    Tell me what those large companies making those record profits pay their employees? Do you understand the reason people go into business? You think it is to employ people like you? Wow. Why would anyone invest more money in employees with the uncertainty as to the cost of ACA and possibility of higher taxes from this incompetent Administration? Would you invest your money into increasing employment with this uncertainty?
